Charlotte is familiar with Tariq. Not only is he one of the richest and most eligible bachelors in the city, but he’s also a renowned collector of old carousel horses, which Charlotte restores. Their shared passion opens Charlotte up to trusting him with her life and with the desire she can no longer control. But it also makes her vulnerable to a centuries-old curse that will unite her and Tariq in a war against the enemies of humans and Carpathians alike….
My Review …….
Tariq is a club owner (his business partner is Maxim from Dark Crime) he’s also a Carpathian warrior, he’s been fighting the vampires for centuries, but a little unknown fact, Tariq use to make carousel horses🎠 but as the vampires became more prevalent, Tariq had to put his work tools down and become a warrior.
Tariq is in the club, when he notices a smell, an elusive fragrance, his blood begins to pound and he’s determined to find out the owner of the smell, and when he hears Charlotte’s voice he’s stunned!!!! It’s her!!! The woman he has been holding out for…..
Charlotte and her best friend are on a mission, they need to find her brothers murderer and Genevieve’s grandmother, sat in a club Charlotte and Genevieve chat to a group of men, but Charlotte isn’t feeling comfortable with them (they are giving creepy vibes, and when she uses her psychic ability, she’s shocked at the images that bombard her, the men are murderers!!!
Charlotte has been invited to restore his collection of antique carousel horses. In fact her boss was due to restore them, but he was murdered.
When Charlotte sets foot in Tariq’s home, there are a number of Carpathian warriors already at the compound. They are helping Tariq protect the children and Emaline.
We have several battles (the vampires are becoming more organised) they want what is on Tariq’s grounds…. women!! Potential lifemates (and rescued children from the book “Dark Crime”) one woman in particular has the master vampire frantic to reacquire her (Emaline had been attacked in “Dark Crime” and the master vampire had a taste of her blood and power, he wants her back)
I like this book, it showed that some of the Carpathian’s had another life before becoming warriors. It’s also bringing the other ancients from the monastery (Dark Promise) they’ve been told there might be a chance of finding their lifemates in this century and on this continent.
